Poul Anderson's broad satire on Conan the Barbarian makes this one a worthwhile read all on its own, and rather reminds me of the current governor of California, whose first major motion picture role was as Conan. Unfortunately, pages 226-227 are missing, so that the beginning of the Theodore Sturgeon story is, as well.
